提神,鼓舞人心,绿色

什么是你最喜欢的课这么远?它如何扩大你的知识?

以摄影II与助理教授 DRU多诺万 has definitely been a standout class during my time at Lewis & Clark College. If you are seriously interested in photography and looking for ways to push yourself further, I highly recommend this class. Dru is a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellow and has experience working with the New York Times, Vice Magazine, and Aperture Magazine, just to name a few. She also has a wealth of experience as a photo teacher, having taught at Parsons School for Design, Yale University, and Harvard University. Having the opportunity to be in such a small learning environment and gaining hands-on experience is incredible.

在摄影经验来看,DRU已经把我推在拍摄过程中我从来不知道我能去,我远远超出了我什么,我能在短短的一个学期达到预期的地方。她引导你在正确的方向,同时还允许您通过她的课和批评的结构保留您的艺术自主性的这种方式。这是惊人的,有成功的,鼓舞人心的摄影师仰望。

What made you want to come to Lewis & Clark?

The small size of the student body was definitely one of the main draws for me. I couldn’t imagine myself trying to focus in a large lecture hall of 300 people and having very little time to ask questions. Personally, I am the kind of learner that needs to have the professor as available as possible, both in and outside of class time. At Lewis & Clark, the majority of my professors are available for one-on-one appointments during office hours. My relationship with my professors is definitely an integral part of my Lewis & Clark experience thus far and enables me to have a firm grasp on the material taught during lectures.

How do you feel supported as an international student at Lewis & Clark?

Lewis & Clark provides me with a network of staff members who are invested in my well-being as an international student and are there to help me with any issues. Whether it be visa, class, or flight issues, or even just being homesick, I’ve never felt like I couldn’t reach out to someone in the International Students and Scholars (ISS) office. In terms of the student body, I’m surrounded by a large number of international students, which makes me feel more at home. It’s also helpful that a large portion of the international students are also alumni from the United World College schools, and this makes the environment more familiar. I would say that Lewis & Clark is a perfect fit for any recent high school graduate from UWC, as it was a smooth transition.

描述为什么要使用的相机为您的照片拍摄道具。

I decided to bring my camera to the photoshoot because I feel like photography is an integral part of my identity. Throughout my time at Lewis & Clark, this part of my identity has only grown more and more, through taking photo classes as well as being in a social setting conducive to art. People here are always open to being photographed, especially if it’s for an art project, and what better place to take photos than this beautiful campus.

你有没有在校园里工作吗?如果是这样,你怎么适应工作纳入你的日程安排?

因为我大一的秋季学期开始,我在海外工作过和校外课程办公室作为他们的社交媒体实习,以及只是一般的办公室实习。我爱我的工作,我其实期待每当我计划去上班。这是一个参与和刺激的工作,和所有的工作人员感觉就像我的亲人的。这还不算我很难适应我的工作在我的日程安排,并在校园我的经验,工作是非常灵活的,将解决你的类/课外活动。

你是如何选择你的纽约校外计划?什么做你的实习意味着什么?

I wanted a study abroad experience that I’d never be able to have without going on an L&C program specifically. I chose the New York program because it’s quite a rare opportunity to be able to afford to work part time in the city, and have the direct support of an L&C faculty member. We all lived in the beautiful Brooklyn Heights neighborhood, and were provided a stipend. Every week we went to our internships, visited countless galleries and museums, and saw theatre shows several times a week. The internship aspect of the program was one of its biggest draws for me.

在我作为新总部位于纽约的艺术家和出版商马修LEIFHEIT工作室经理的角色,我在出版获得了宝贵的经验,销售为艺术家和出版物,以及视频编辑。对于LEIFHEIT目前的展览 没有更多的美国 在康涅狄格州的格里斯沃尔德佛罗伦萨博物馆,我的工作是编辑谁在一个历史悠久的美国教会寻求庇护驱逐出境冰3个移民家庭的采访录像。我的职位还包括与哑光版本,LEIFHEIT的好评发行日期出版印记工作。我大大促进了概念化,编辑,设计,生产,其最新游戏营销, 接近爱情:拍立得 通过成因布雷尔对orridge,以及问题54,55,和56 磨砂杂志。我还继续远程管理在线市场的更新,并在国内和国际市场的大型和小型的购买者对应。

How did you choose your first overseas program? What has your overseas study add to your L&C experience so far?

只要我还记得,我一直对科学感兴趣。然而,正如我逐渐长大,我意识到,我是不是科学倾斜,我本来想。因此,我对科学的学术兴趣减退,但我仍然深深吸引,并通过它的较少学术方面很感兴趣。新西兰是一个令人难以置信的生物多样性的地方,我看过这个节目,以重燃从非专业的角度我的兴趣的最佳方式。我也完成了我的普通教育实验室的要求而做的事情我知道我会喜欢。是什么吸引了我的计划,以及是,虽然了解自然世界,我们还深入研究了新西兰丰富的文化历史。 

My overseas experience was incredibly enriching, and I feel lucky to have been able to participate in the program as part of my curriculum at Lewis & Clark. The New Zealand program allowed me to immerse myself in a new culture along with an L&C professor and students, and also expanded my idea of what I want to do with my degree once I graduate.
